I am from NYC.
Lisa is a superb host. The apartment is her HOME, hence during our 10 days trip we felt like a true new yorker arriving to our cozy fully equipped place. The entire apt. was totally clean & the private garden just made it more special (we also had 2 lovely squirrels visiting sometimes).
The UES neighborhood is absolutely SAFE, imho better than UWS actually! Tons of regular & fast food restaurants (Bareburger, Shake Shack, Eats On Lex etc.), pastries (e. g. Two Little Red Hens offering one of the top 10 NY Cheescake, according to NY Daily News) bars, shops, markets (Fairway, Gristedes etc.) are within 0,5 - 1 mile distance!
Subway (line 4-5-6) is 8-10 min. walk on 86th - Lexington Av. offering the shopping & eating service opportunities written above.
Cab fare to downtown was between $ 13-17.
All in all, both Lisa and her place is totally recommended!!!!! You won't be disappointed renting Lisa's place for your trip!
L'appartement de Lisa est parfaitement situé à 10-15 min à pied de la station de métro 86th street, dans un quartier calme mais proche de toutes commodités. L'ambiance bohème-chic globe-trotteur de l'appartement et du jardin, improbable à New York, n'a cessé de nous séduire pendant notre séjour d 'une semaine. nous y avons très facilement séjourné à 2 puis à 4. C'était le lieu idéal, à 15 min à pied de Central Park pour se détendre et entrevoir un New York au calme après nos folles journées de marche ! Tal Bagel est à 5 minutes à pied, on recommande aussi ;) Lisa répond très vite et facilement à tous les messages.
Bon séjour dans ce superbe appart' à tous ceux qui auront le plaisir de séjourner chez Lisa !
We had a great time at Lisa's house.
This is where Lisa lives, very clean, comfortable, we have all the things we need, you feel like home. We were 3, but could be 4, the house have space enought and you have a beautiful garden.
Very nice neighborhood, quiet, safe and close to all you need, stores, market, restaurants, subway and it's near to some attractions like Guggenheim,Metropolitan Museum and of course the wonderfull Central Park.
Fantastic host, she is always available to answer the questions and is very flexible, it was very easy to get the keys of the house, you'll not have problems with her, for sure!.
I would definitely recommend to my family and friends.
Great apartment in a really nice part of town. Lisa was a helpful host and made us feel at home. 4 of us fit comfortably in the space. The outside garden area is a real nice addition and rare in NYC. There are plenty of bars and restaurants within a short walk as well as the subway. Highly recommended.
Lisa and her friend were great guests and were really easy to be in touch with. Really relaxed, fun and clean guests. I was happy to welcome Lisa to my apartment right at her birthday while drinking (a non-French) wine! ;) I hope my apartment was a great place to start the celebration! They left the apartment exactly as it was when they arrived. I would love to have them stay if they are ever in Amsterdam again. Thanks!
